1. Beverly, I can’t say that one is easier to grow than the others. I think it depends on how healthy the plant is when you put it in the pond. I know that I have had horrible luck with the night blooming varieties. Remember the Red Flare? I’ve lost two of those and won’t attempt another.

  2. Very pretty would look good with any color. Is white easier to grow as it is a common one? (at least around here.)
